After a couple of years of looking through other people's reviews and checking out med spas' specials, I finally decided to treat myself to slimmer thighs I've always wanted. I have an hour glass shape and a great waist, but my thighs never seemed to match my upper body. Even at my skinniest, I always felt my thighs were still thicker than the rest of me. A couple of months ago I attended an open house of Bridgetown Aesthetics in Portland, Oregon where the coolsculpting representative explained the procedure. I entered into a 1 free sculpting drawing and won it! Because I chose to do thighs and I got 1 free procedure, I had to pay for the second one $750. I chose to do my outer thighs. Ideally I would love to have my inner thighs done also, but that will just have to wait its turn. The outer thighs take 2 hours on each side or 4 hours total plus extra time for "before" pictures, measurements, paperwork, restroom break between the thighs, etc.
Today was the procedure day. I was super excited. It felt a bit intense for a few brief minutes after the applicator was applied as the ice was doing its magic on my thigh, but soon after the "pain" went away and I didn't feel anything. It wasn't super comfortable laying there for a total of 4 hours. But the aesthetician Melody was super nice and made sure I had everything I needed, including movies to watch or something to read. I was content with my smart phone for entertainment and when it started to lose charge, she went and found me a charger. How nice is that! After the applicator was removed from my right thigh, she massaged the area and let me use the restroom as she set up to do my other side. My treated side felt a bit sore but it only lasted minutes. However after my self side was done, I felt a lot more sore. So much that I walked funny back to my car. It felt sore and intense for about 10-15 minutes, but then it felt totally normal. I am writing this review a few hours after my appointment and feel totally fine. We'll see about tomorrow. My follow-up appointment will be in two months where after pictures and after measurements will be taken. I am very hopeful and excited to see results.

2 months post

It's been a little over two months and I haven't noticed anything significant. I finally had a "post" procedure appointment where the aesthetician took new pictures. She sent me the first side-by-side picture. The one on the left is before, and on the right is after. It looks to me like the outer side is smoother and the saddle bags are smaller. I was told that I should see continuous results in the next couple of months. I will update again in 1-2 months.

Great! Very attentive and kind.
